Jamal Crawford is making progress and is shooting Tuesday, but he will not be a full participant in today's practice.
Coach Rivers said just yesterday that it looked like he would miss the rest of the regular season but him shooting today gives fantasy owners hope. J.J. Redick and Darren Collison will get the extra minutes at shooting guard with Crawford out. I would consider him questionable for the game Wednesday against the Thunder. Crawford is averaging 18.6 points per game this season.ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Tim Duncan (rest) will not play Friday against Denver.
The Spurs will take advantage of the holiday and give Duncan an extra day of rest and get ready for Saturday against the Hawks. The Spurs could go with LaMarcus Aldridge at center for Friday and use David West at power forward or they could just give Boris Diaw the start. Either way, those are the three players likely to see the extra work in Duncan's absence. Analysis: Howard Bender
